Join Amy Jo Burns for a Virtual Author Conversation on Crowdcast (4/15)

Share this story with your world:

Amy Jo Burns, author of SHINER (Riverhead), will be in conversation with fellow writer Anica Mrose Rissi, moderated by Janie Hermann of the Princeton Public Library, via Crowdcast on Wednesday, April 15, at 7:30pm (ET).

Rich with epic love and epic loss, and diving deep into a world that is often forgotten but still part of America, SHINER reveals the hidden story behind two generations’ worth of Appalachian heartbreak and resolve. Burns brings readers a taut debut novel about modern female myth-making in a land of men-and one young girl who must ultimately open her eyes.

Amy Jo Burns is also the author of the memoir Cinderland. Her writing has appeared in The Paris Review Daily, Tin House, Ploughshares, Gay Magazine, Electric Literature, Literary Hub, and The Paris Review Daily, and the anthology Not That Bad.
